In a nearby supernova remnant, gas traces help astronomers map the star's violent end.
 
EXPLORING A STAR'S DEATH IN 3D

Giant ‘bubbles’ cluster at a dead star’s center, seen in the first-ever 3D map of a supernova remnant’s interior.

Cassiopeia A is the gas cloud left behind after a star exploded, first glimpsed on Earth about 325 years ago. Its youth and proximity to us make it one of the best-studied supernova remnants in our galaxy. Recent observations have made it possible for scientists to create the first map of the star’s interior in 3D. By reconstructing the explosion and its aftermath, astronomers will better understand the death throes of massive stars.

Meet a new species of car-sized amphibian from 220 million years ago, with hundreds of teeth in a 'toilet seat' head. 
Scientists report a new species of giant amphibian after digging up multiple fossils from an ancient, dried-up lake where hundreds of the beasts probably died.

"For the first time, a NASA satellite has quantified in three dimensions how much dust makes the trans-Atlantic journey from the Sahara Desert to the Amazon rainforest. Among this dust is phosphorus, an essential nutrient that acts like a fertilizer, which the Amazon depends on in order to flourish."
